There are two different types of skills: ‘hard’ or technical skills, and ‘soft’ or transferable skills. These soft skills are the ones we take with us throughout our whole career – important skills that are useful in any job, like communication, reliability, and teamwork. So what are some ways we can build up these valuable transferable skills?
In this unit, we’ve pulled together some resources which can help young people identify their transferable skills, and ways they can build these skills. We’ve provided some questions to stimulate reflection and thinking, and explained some simple concepts with the aim of expanding their thinking.
